THANK YOU First of all I want to thank you all for the amazing feedback I've had from my last blog. As I said this is a new experience for me and I can only do it if I'm completely myself, so I really appreciate you for enjoying it. As the title suggests this is a blog about my NEW group called "the FAM" because all fibre nuts are really one BIG FAMILY. Although I create sculptures to sell and teach others how to needle felt, I am not opposed to being surrounded by others who do the same or other genres. This is some of my sisters fibre work. I am surrounded by sisters who crochet and sew, c ..read more

Okay I know the first thing you are thinking is that I spelled "Tales" wrong. Well I can forgive you for thinking that but I promise, this is actually, a tale about horses. A STORY OF GROWTH. Once upon a time I was just a full time needle felt artist. I was happily stabbing my way through life-size joeys, emu chicks, echidnas, quokkas, lambs and so much more. All from a humble lump of wool and my favourtie pastime .. STABBING !! Scroll for more pics of my stabbed creatures, all from a lump of fluff. Creating these was a lot of fun and it's nice to share my pieces on the internet among my peer ..read more

Processing Dobby into Core wool

Dobby is the best core wool producer of my first years breeding. He is the son of Esme (Merino) and Ragnar (Border Lester/Poll Dorset x Merino). I would really like to encourage everyone to process their own raw fleece. Not only for the great techniques you will learn, but also to avoid processing costs. It's a great way to create core for yourself so that you can experiment freely with your needle felting. In the following videos I will show you a couple of my favorite methods to process raw fleece into core wool. I'm using Dobby's fleece here, but this method works for all types of core wool ..read more

Dyeing wool

First and foremost I would like to disclose that I am, in no way, an expert on dyeing fibre. In fact I am a complete novice and have only really ever experimented. For this reason I thought it would be nice to tell you how easy it is to have some fun and try dyeing yourself. When I first started to needle felt the only fibre I could get, in bucket loads, was “Old Mate Stanley’s” fine Merino fleeces. At the time I had no idea about fibre at all. I was trying to create sculptures with this abundant supply and realised fairly quickly that his fleece was in no way classed as a core wool! Food Col ..read more

One of my biggest passions is picking up detail, recreating it and training others to do the same. It's one of the key learning curves built into my comprehensive online VIDEO course. This skill alone is the number one secret to growing ones instinct as an artist. Just like any exercise, it takes time, practice and most of all repetition, in order to flourish. So here are my top tips for identifying differences and training your eye for detail. Although this will be a challenge, I can assure you that you won't even have to think about it eventually. Round and round, up and down One of the fir ..read more

How to store needle felted sculptures.

I have always loved creating my own custom packaging and now that I have so many delicate sculptures the importance of it is even more evident. In my opinion there is only one way to protect hairy 3D sculptures and that is with SATIN. Both when creating them and when packaging them. I emphasized 'satin' because its important; not silk, not velvet, not even jersey or lycra! No, no, NO it MUST be SATIN. Just like a satin pillow case stops the fuzzies when sleeping the satin also protects the sculptures. This being said I'm positive that some sculptures are less delicate and can be put into tiss ..read more
